An appeal to feed more Filipino children

An appeal to bring meals to more Filipino kids who are experiencing hunger and malnutrition.

 

Dear Friends, Partners, and Co-Advocates,

Since the launch of #ProjectBaon last 2015, we have always had an average of 300 beneficiaries per batch under the program. This year 2021, after the economic turmoil brought about by the Covid19 pandemic, we resumed the program with a total of 400 beneficiaries, with selected kids from Antipolo Rizal (200 kids), Quezon City (150 kids), and Pangasinan (50). These children belong to families who are living below the poverty line, whose parents are not able to meet even their most basic needs such as food, shelter, and clothing. For these 400 kids, our staff and volunteers prepare and deliver the meals to their houses weekly, rain or shine. Though we have an increase in the number of beneficiaries thanks to all your generous donations, sadly, the number “400” barely makes a dent against the number of children in the country who are now experiencing involuntary hunger for the past months.

“Time is running out for the country's hungry children”.…says an article from Rappler Philippines “The July 3-6, 2020 National Mobile Survey of the Social Weather Stations (SWS) illustrates the intensity of hunger in the country. The results indicate that 20.9%, an estimated 5.2 million Filipino families, or roughly 30 million Filipinos, mostly children, reported experiencing involuntary hunger due to lack of food to eat at least once in the past 3 months.

We have received and continue receiving multiple appeals from different partners nationwide, on the need for a full-time feeding program for the children in their communities, whose parents are still left unemployed. As of today, we have OVER 11,000 children on the waitlist to be a part of a #ProjectBaon feeding program in their community. These are children we were able to reach in the past 2 months during our Christmas outreach activities in November and December (sponsored by a corporate partner), but unfortunately, cannot convert into a full-time feeding program yet due to lack of current resources.

Below are locations with an appeal from our partners on the field to have their own #ProjectBaon feeding program:

 Indeed, the future of thousands of Filipino children is at stake if we do not intervene now and provide them with consistent access to nutritious meals. “Filipino children's hunger and malnutrition are expected to worsen significantly as food and healthy diets become even more unaffordable to many Filipino households due to the COVID-19 restrictions and the accompanying economic recession”- Link We need your help to create awareness and spread the word.

Currently, our team prepares and delivers about 1,200 meals weekly to the houses of the children in need. This has been made possible through your consistent giving and partnership with us. With more donors like you, together we can save more children from hunger and malnutrition. We appeal to you to please consider sharing this report with your friends and families who have the heart to help the Filipino children.

 

Together, let us FEED, NOURISH, EMPOWER!

 

Sincerely from all of us,

Dawn+ ROFP Staff and Volunteers
